    Their old hat them now mate, they dont pack a decent enough punch and the diodes go pop, save your 80 quid and put it towards a prakasa or a telos

    Have a look at quantum board lighting mate, more twice the efficiency and run without fans and even heatsinks in some applications

    Mars gen 1 and to be fair even prakasas are little outdated now ( 2013 tech)

    What's your budget?

    Hi mate you can pay £££, upward of a grand for a HLG550v2 but you can put yourself a very able kit together or even buy kits off eBay

    Best thing to happen to grow lighting since hps

    250w beats 400hps in all the grow labs tests

    No fans whatsoever on them

    I was looking at the GN Telos 0008 240watt led light. How many of these would you guys recommend in a 1.2m x 1.2m tent?


    No one like us we donít care. #upthelions

    hi mate I don’t mean to seem negative but you will probably do only 1 grow with that light,your yields will be poor,my friend did a 2 plant grow under one of those lights,just not enough light for the plants to flower properly,hence long skinny buds with not much resin,I really hope I’m wrong and you smash it and get 5 oz off it,but you could be wasting your time,things might go a lot better if you can afford to add another 300,it’s all a learning curve mate,I’ve been growing 25+ years and I’m still learning every day.

    What Benson said. I myself started on a single led and realised that it's not enough.

    There's like a minimum threshold (around 150w per plant for old mars leds) to get past and then you will start getting propper buds.

    Otherwise just flower one photo plant under that mars 600
